Renowned bakery by Jason Hisley takes the cake

Miranda Parish, Staff Writer

When in a time crunch, grocery stores with prepackaged “bakery” items seem too good to be true. But are these cheap alternatives worth the stop, when you could support a local bakery while getting the most flavor for your buck?

As seen on television shows, “Cake Boss,” “Cupcake Wars” and “Cutthroat Kitchen” former baker and owner of La Cakerie, Jason Hisley, decided he wanted to take a step back, launching his own bakery, Cake. Located in the Padonia Village Shopping Center, Cake is a flavor-filled shop with an abundance of new cupcakes, cakes, doughnuts and their innovative cake and cookie dough jars that do more than satisfy cravings.

“I wanted to create something that can be fun and good. We can ship cake jars now, so everybody can have them, plus they’re easy to eat. We create our own labels, so they have some of us in them,” co-owner and head baker Jason Hisley says.

But cake jars are not the only desserts that have “some of us” in them. Their flavorful, yet fluffy cupcakes are packed with deliciousness too. From fan favorites, like Classic Vanilla, Triple Chocolate and Strawberries & Cream, to Jason’s favorites like Chocolate Peanut Butter, customers have ample choices to choose from.

“My favorite to eat is a tie between the Chocolate Peanut Butter, or the Black Bottom. Like, who doesn’t like chocolate and peanut butter? But I love making the fresh fruit filled ones; the ones filled with strawberries like in our Strawberries and Cream cupcake and the fruity doughnut ones,” Hisley said.

An aesthetically appealing monochrome landscape guarantees these desserts as insta-worthy. As soon as you walk in, a modern black and white open setting lends a welcoming vibe as friendly faces meet you right at the counter. A to-go order comes in a simple yet elegant plastic container or paper box, while a dining-in order comes on a matte black plate, which brings out the detail and sleekness of the treats.

There are even delicacies for those without a sweet tooth. Hisley’s creativity blooms in dishes like his pistachio cream filled croissants, and savory pastries, which offers something for everyone.

Some of these treats, like cupcakes, also come in vegan, and gluten free options, so people with allergies can enjoy them too.

Whether you are seeking an addition to an Instagram food blog, a chance to meet the man behind the cake jar, or simply craving a sweet treat, swing by Cake to satisfy all of your tastebuds.
